Sonia Sanchez—Poet, Activist, and Scholar—To Speak at the Birmingham Public Library
The Birmingham Public Library is hosting Sonya Sanchez on November 6, 2010, for a discussion on two new books of her work: Morning Haiku and I’m Black When I’m Singing, I’m Blue When I Ain’t and Other Plays.
Morning Haiku, her first publication in over a decade, is a collection of haiku that celebrates the gifts of life and mourns the deaths of revered African American figures in the worlds of music, literature, art, and activism. I’m Black When I’m Singing, I’m Blue When I Ain’t and Other Plays brings together Sanchez’s collection of plays, five previously published and two unpublished until now. Dr. Jacqueline Wood, Associate Professor of English at UAB, is the editor of the book and will join in on the discussion.
